If I were in your situation, I'd just make the filling portion in the crockpot & have a stack of warm flour tortillas next to it with a spoon & just let folks make their own enchiladas or soft tacos. You could warm the tortillas at home & wrap them well in foil before transporting.

Try this technique http://www.recipezaar.com/65229. The recipe got decent reviews so maybe you can adapt yours accordingly.

Like all the comments on the recipezaar page, my first thoughts were than even corn tortillas were just going to turn to mush.

I'm with preparing a filling in the crockpot, and doing a 'soft taco bar' with both flour and corn tortillas, and lots of different toppings.

I'm afraid some things just aren't made for the crockpot!

Sounds logical to me, and much easier.

There are a lot of recipes that are adapted to crockpots which really don't need to be -- but are for the convenience of leaving it untended for a long period of time. The reviews of the recipe were very positive and said nothing about the corn tortillas turning to mush--any more than they would in an oven. Don't think I understand the reluctance to use the recipe--if it is wanted to do in the crockpot.

Just a follow-up...
Much to my surprise, with all the different foods there today, the Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas in the crock pot was definitely the most popular - judging by the amount that was left of everything.
I used corn tortillas & layered it until I ran out of the chicken mixture.
Yes, it was a bit mushy but it was wonderful spooned over tortilla chips with a dollop of sour cream on top.
It was an experiment that I wasn't going to try to recreate. As well as it went over, I'm going to have to try to remember exactly what I did!
Thank you to everyone for your assistance. My reputation is intact!
